The blood sacrifices have brought rain to Demonside, but across the void, the Warlock College of Vinland is still storing and gathering magic, heedless of the warnings of the international magical community. The underground is full of warlocks who disagree with the college, but do they care about wizards and demons or only about snatching power?

With a foot in each world, A

Have you ever wondered...what happens when worlds collide?

'Rogue in the Making' is the follow up to 'Warlock in Training' and the second book in TJ Nichol's series 'Studies in Demonology' and the first thing I want to say is 'If you haven't read 'Warlock in Training' you probably should. I honestly can't say that you can't read this one without having read the first book but having read it and having read this one...I think I can safely say you'll probably find it a whole lot less confusing if

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars


Oh, I have been waiting for this sequel to Warlock in Training for more than a year, and I greedily grabbed it up as soon as I could. Nichols has created such a facisntating and well developed world in this series, and I couldn’t wait to escape back into it and see where the adventure would take Angus and Saka next. This book is so much more than romance, though there are those elements (albeit in a somewhat untraditional way), but it’s about right and wrong, good

While I’m not going to go into a whole lot of spoilers for this book, I will have to talk about several things that will be spoilers for book one, so if you haven’t read Warlock in Training yet, and still intend to, I’d advise you give this review a miss. I’m basically going to be spoiling the climax of book one in this review, so if you go further here it might make the reading experience a bit less enjoyable.

So, now that all that is handled…

Rogue in the Making opens up shortly after the end of

As more details emerge about this story’s world where Demonside and Humanside need to be in balance to survive, the stakes increase as new dangers come out of the woodwork. The Warlock College of Vinland is as unscrupulous as ever, but the underground turns out to be less than reliable and just as power-hungry as the “official” warlocks running the College. It puts Angus right in the middle, questioning his loyalties and forcing him to look at the entire situation in a new light. He desperately ...more

I liked the direction this story moved things along to overall. I wasn't particularly enjoying the love triangle that was introduced in the first book, but as everything goes to hell in a hand basket in this book I liked the direction ultimately looks to be taking things with that.

I like Angus and Saka together. They're different and those differences drive them to learn more about each other. Terrance on the other hand was a little on the outs for me. As another human he didn't intrigue me as

With Saka at his side, Angus recovers form the wound that almost killed him, while the mages teach magic to a group of young wizards, and the sacrifices provided by the underground bring beneficial rain to Demonside. On the face of it, everything seems to be great, and the alliance between people and demons against the Warlock College seems to be able to bring desired results. But when the leaders of the underground start to break the covenant rules and resort to threats to ensure full cooperati ...more

Nothing much happened, despite the fact the book was fairly lengthy. The Resistance is evil too, blah blah. We are from two different worlds, blah blah. Hey surprise, let's make this a m/m/m book.

Maybe something will happen in the third one?

I would rate this 4.5 stars.

Angus is straddling two words, now considered a rogue warlock and wanted by the College and police, he is protected by the underground. He has been training in Demonside as an apprentice to his demon, Saku, but he can't stay there as he'll be drained of power and die. He can only get back to Humanside with the help of the underground opening the void for him to return. They have their own agenda besides rebalancing the magic to save the world. On the other hand, it is

Reviewed for Rainbow Gold Reviews. A copy was provided n exchange for an honest review.

After finishing this book, my nerves were jangling and I could barely sit still to write the review because I wanted to continue reading the last book in the series to see how this trilogy would end. After the events in the first book, Angus’s father kicking him out and trying to kill him, Angus is at the mercy of Demonside and the underground. Angus begins living a not secret double life. In Demonside, Angus

A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Review An Alisa Review:

Rating: 5 stars out of 5

I was so excited to see Angus and Saka again and I was disappointed. This story was just as in depth and thought out as the last one. This story seems to pick up just after the last book when Angus and the trainees are in demonside following Angus’ injury. This book was even more trying for these characters as they continue to try and help both worlds.

The story’s focus was still primarily on solving the problem o

Rogue in the Making is the second book in the Studies in Demonology series by TJ Nichols. This series just captured my attention and I am devouring these books... the world building is just so well done and I love the descriptions. And the characters just stand out to me and beg to tell me about their story. I found myself conflicted.. wishing I could read faster to find out more and not wanting to read so fast so that it never ends. It is filled with mysteries, conspiracies, betrayals, jealousy ...more

The second installment of the Studies In Demonology series is as engaging and thrilling as the first one,if not more so. Angus is caught in a net of corruption and betrayal, never knowing who to trust. Thankfully he can find solace with Saka and Terrence, each moment with them all the more precious considering the danger they're all in.

Rogue In The Making ads more interesting characters to the mix,more risks, more magic...more love. The story is fast paced and I've been on the edge of my seat al

LOVED this series (of 3 books) - all 3 must be read in order and together tell the complete story and this is the 2nd book. The first 2 aren't really cliffhangers, they end that part of the book but the overall story doesn't end until the 3rd. I found the world to be intricate and well-crafted enough that it really enhanced the story without detracting or distracting too much. The MC's (there are 3 by the end of the series) were so different - perfectly imperfect for each other and not your typi ...more

This is the 2nd book in the Studies in Demonology
We get to see more of Angus, Terrance & Saka. We see the journey that these 3 go through to be together even when they are always be threaten. They want to see some peace between the humans and demons. We see that Vinland is slowing starting to unravel and what is happening in the rest of the world. What will happen next for these characters. cant wait for the next book recommend this book do need to read in order so have a full understanding

Another fantastic book in the Demonology series! This book had me torn, so I felt for poor Angus. The world building was as good as ever & the deceit and lies only increased. Just who can Saka & Angus trust apart from each other? And an ending guaranteed to keep you hooked & diving straight into the next book.

I received an ARC of this book to review for Rainbow Romance Reads.

What a series. I can't wait to see how the next book goes. So many things are up in the air right now. I'm biting my nails on how it's all going to turn out. The characters are just great. They are so indepth. There is something constantly going on. It's a page turner. I'm hoping it all works out in the end.

Heart-felt and emotional! Things heat up in this second installment. Danger stalks our heroes around every corner leaving us wondering what will happen next.
I was left on the edge of my seat the whole way through. I loved the suspense and action throughout the story. I can’t wait to see how things end.

This book was absolutely amazing, it had me captivated from the moment I began reading it. I was completely drawn into this book and I loved that it had interesting twists, I didn't know what to expect and I LOVED that!

It was a wonderful follow up to book one and I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
